Well here's the thing. If you do NOT need it right now, then no, don't do it and wait to see if prices do drop. The other thing though, you don't want to wait too long because it will most certainly be your primary camera at the weddings and you definitely want to get to know it and how to use it inside and out, and that includes the features AND with your lenses. If and when Canon puts up the refurb list again, they had them in stock fairly frequently lately at around $1700 US dollars. In Germany may be a lot different. My recommendation is to wait a bit and see, as more people buy 5D Mk III's and 1D X's, it could drop. However it is such a good camera, you're right, many pros are keeping for backup, which I made the mistake of not doing.
